Test your chess: daily chess puzzle # 115

January 6, 2015

Black to play and win

White has just played 1 Nf1-d2.

W Kobese v J Gluckman 1996

 

Solution

In a real game, black might not spot the winning manoeuvre, which takes advantage of white's mis-aligned pieces. But in a puzzle, it is fairly straightforward. 1..Ra2 (examine all biffs) 2 Nc4[] Ra1+ (again, examine…) 3 Kg2 Rc1 (again…) 4 Re2 b3 (yet again), and a piece drops off.
